Conoravirus Closure Update

Michael B. Everling writes: 

Dear Karl Hessian,

We regret that it was necessary to postpone the March meeting to April, at very late notice, due to the closure of our venue. This is uncertain, but we trust that by April we may resume as usual.

We trust that our speaker for April, Bob Weber, will then have a thing or two to say about this virus situation. We will reschedule the program on Liberland (originally scheduled for April) sometime later this year.

This was the first postponement in 26 years of our club's operation.

Thank you for your patience. Please know that your support of the club is very much appreciated and valued.

Please note the new times for the club meetings. The restaurant closes at 9 p.m. We appreciate your understanding and assistance.
